Available On

Listen to the British Council’s most popular English learning podcast series, LearnEnglish Podcasts, on your mobile device!

The app helps you learn everyday English by providing over 80 episodes and over 20 hours of free listening about a wide range of topics, as well as great new features that help you listen and understand the conversations.

In each episode, podcast hosts Tess, Ravi, Adam and Rob chat with different people to talk about everyday topics such as their favourite celebrities, making plans for the weekend, having a dinner party and which cities they like to live in.

Listen, read and check that you understand

In every episode, listen and read along with a moving audioscript. The audioscript gets highlighted to help you focus on listening. Comprehension questions come with each episode so that you can check your listening and whether you understand the conversation.

Features background playing and offline access

The audio plays even when the screen is turned off. You can also download episodes onto your tablet or phone and listen offline, and delete episodes after you’ve listened to them to create space on your tablet or phone. Re-download the episodes when you want to listen again.

How do I dowload stream audio ?? 

Hello Quang,

If you want to download the Elementary podcasts to listen to them offline, then you will need to go to the podast episode pages on our website and download them from there. You can't (as far as I know) download them for offline use using the app.

Does that answer your question?

Best wishes,

Hi @mjjv,
If you have a phone that is compatible with this app (Android, Apple, Samsung Wave, many Nokia, BlackBerry (very soon) you can use the app to download the audio.
Alternatively, you can download the files directly from and move themn onto your phone's internal memory via your computer.
